  • Weekends

    I’ve always had my weekends to myself, able to spend them quietly doing nothing with no guilt or regret. I work all week, it seems only fair that the weekend is my time to fill as I choose. Lately that seems not to be the case. I feel like I don’t get to choose what…

  • Is it too early?

    To take down my alterna-tree? Ha, just kidding. It is far too late to still have this up, but it is hard when you don’t have storage for something like this. It will need to go to Mum’s house I think.

  • Current Questions – Part II

    February? Already? Is tax season going to kill me this year? How long is my arm going to hurt? (Worth it, being vaccinated & boosted is cool! But still ow. 😕) Did I drink enough water today? Is this headache going to go away? Can I magically find the time & energy to accomplish my…

  • My Repeating Annoyances

    I am sure we all have a list like this, the things that no matter how many times they happen, we never learn our lesson or seem to be able to avoid falling prey to their irritation. Laundry will be done and in need of folding exactly when I want to just crawl into bed.…

  • Mothers

    Have you ever noticed that arguing with your mother is basically pointless? I’m not talking about big things here, just the everyday. That money you’re sure you owe them, but they refuse to acknowledge they lent you. The no gifts policy at birthdays and holidays that they implemented but somehow doesn’t apply to them. The…

    The past few years have been, well shitty, for many of us. One way or another the pandemic has affected our lives, added another layer of stress to what, for many, was already too much. I definitely have felt like more than one layer has been laid upon my life. Getting older comes with a…

  • Intention

    I woke up this morning, after a night of mostly restful sleep which is rare for me, and thought I would attempt an awkward conversation. I brought breakfast. I was calm. I had rehearsed want I wanted to say. Then my plans immediately got derailed. Which in turn had me becoming more and more hesitant…

  • Reactions

    I have been thinking about how people react to situations lately. Questioning why they decide to take a certain point of view or make a specific choice. Humans seem to inevitably assume we are correct in our position and decisions. We are also a naturally stubborn species. Yes, of course there are those who manage…

  • Little Things 2

    Even though my job can be very stressful I’m grateful to have an awesome boss who always puts his employees first and strives to create an environment we are happy to work in. The top of our office philosophy is ‘Family First’, meaning never worry about missing work to deal with family emergencies or even…
